LOVE MAKES A MAN.

is This very pleasing Comedy is a modernization by

COLLEY CIBBER from two of the Plays of Beaumont and Fletcher—The Elder BROTHER and the Cusa TOM OF THE COUNTRY.

It is not one of those powerful productions of the mind, wherein every scene affords a lesson for conduct, and every character a mirror of being. It is also not one of those flimsy insipidities in which there is neither dialogue nor decency, character nor incident-But, with its personages well opposed, and some strong writing and humorous oddity, it is likely to stand its ground as long as mankind agree to divert their spleen by laughing at a Coxcomb.

Note. With the Careless Husband will be given a Character of Cibber.
